On behalf of Wilkenson, "Thank You" so much!
Thanks so much for helping to provide a safe home for Wilkenson.
Twelve year old Wilkenson lost his parents in 2009. After his parents died Wilkenson lived with his grandmother, but she couldn't care for him or his brother. Sadly, she was forced to abandon them at the HTDC orphanage.
Wilkinson’s grandmother hoped the orphanage could keep a roof over their head, but safe houses large enough for all the kids are very expensive in Port-au-Prince. The orphanage can’t afford to pay it’s own rent and, without your help, Wilkenson was in danger of becoming a homeless street-kid.
But now, because of you, Wilkenson will continue to have a safe home. Your donations will help pay the rent and provide caregivers, water and electricity for Wilkenson for a year*.
Wilkenson has a bright future because you gave. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Wilkenson. Thanks so much.
We’ll keep updating you about Wilkenson and all his friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans. If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!
Thanks again for making Wilkenson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!
*Please note, that the orphanage is home to around thirty children. Your donations to this project will cover Wilkenson’s share of the costs over a year, but will be spent on all the children in parallel as we fundraise for each in turn.
